In these difficult times for golf and, of course, society in general, a new online golf networking platform called Linksbook is giving golfers some much needed focus as courses throughout the UK and Ireland begin to reopen.
Linksbook is the brainchild of the founders of the hugely popular Virgin Atlantic Flying Club ‘Swingers’ programme. With 16 years experience, Milestone Event Management have utilised the best features of the Virgin Atlantic programme and taken the concept to a new level of networking in the world of golf.
With a major investment into a sophisticated web platform, Linksbook makes it easy for members to connect with other golfers and premium golfing brands to enhance their golfing lives. Linksbook provides golfers from any demographic the ability to organise their golf calendar with fellow users at a click of a button, whilst giving easy access to all their golfing news and scores.
Linksbookgolf.com went live on 22 May 2020 and even with only a restricted level of club competitions to play for during these times of social distancing, golfers are able to see their personal progress against others online, whilst building up a whole new network of social and business golfing contacts.
Leading brands such as Titleist, Your Golf Travel, Stewart Golf, Glenmuir, Sunderland of Scotland, Dirty Dog Eyewear, Blunt Umbrellas and Hayman’s Gin have already signed up to be partners and will be some fantastic prizes throughout the season, including a trip to the 2021 Masters and a full set of custom fit Titleist T Series clubs.
In addition, Linksbook have teamed up with former World Golf Trick Shot Champion Geoff Swain who will be providing unique content, commentary and good humour for members throughout the season.
Luke Parry, Director of Milestone Event Management is confident Linksbook will appeal to golfers throughout the UK and further afield. He said: “Having run a hugely successful programme with Virgin Atlantic, we know there’s a real appetite for a modern golf networking platform. We are excited to now have the opportunity to offer the general golfing public a new and improved version of what has been a bit of a hidden secret for those Virgin Atlantic flyers for the past 16 years.”
He adds: “We are delighted that some big names in the golf industry recognise the potential and opportunity with Linksbook and we look forward to working with these brands in delivering something unique and exciting for golfers during these difficult times”.
